Château Leydet-Valentin 2018 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Château Leydet-Valentin 2018 – Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

The nose is fruity, elegant, quite aromatic and offers a beautiful finesse/finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of juicy Boysen berry, ripe/juicy raspberry and small notes of violet associated with fine touches of caramelization as well as a fine hint of almond. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, juiciness, freshness, elegance and a mineral frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy cassis, fleshy blackberry and small notes of fleshy violet associated with touches of fleshy/juicy raspberry, small touches of vanilla as well as very discreet hints of grilled almond, nutmeg and a subtle varietal hint. Good length. Tannins are well-built. A subtle hint of bitterness on the finish/persistance.
